beautiful classic notes as if its from Provence, France. citrus, bright acidity, strong minerality with some white peach, a bit of fennel, and some nectarine. great for this hot summer solstice day!
My first ever review of a rose wine, not bad! This wine was part of the Snooth tasting, and having tried it at G.B. Russo's last weekend I picked up a bottle and chilled it expecting a resumption of the unbearably hot weather we've had so far this summer. So tonight's the night! I figure I like Rioja, so that at least gives this wine a head start right? The wine has a nice blush color in the glass, almost an orange-pink hue. The nose is quite pleasant with aromas of fresh strawberry and citrus, with just a mild hint of grass. The wine tastes of bright fruit at the outset, with strawberry and fresh cut melon, quickly giving way to a mild flavor of ruby red grapefruit and fresh herbs with a sharp acidity. The finish is clean and crisp, with very mild tannins resulting in a very dry, but short finish. see here for the full review: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2012/06/2011-muga-rioja-rose.html
Bright, pale salmon hue, with aromas of dried stone fruits and flowers; fresh flavor notes of tart red berries and citrus, carried by good acidity to a dry floral and ripe watermelon, passion fruit finish. Great rose' value.
Pale pink. Fragrant with white and pink flowers. Its delicacy creates austerity on the nose. Some stone and mineral noticeable. Flavors of wild strawberry, cantaloupe and rich berry flavors. Tangy, zingy berry fruit with great acid and nice balance. Some zesty spice and a hint of salinity. Really tasty! 6/20/12
The nose showed light strawberry and melon with spring floral notes and a bit of peppery spice peaking through. On the palate it was medium bodied with brisk acidity that lit up the senses and the slightest hint of fruit sweetness. Flavors of nectarine and peach were prominent, mixing with minerals and staying through the finish.
This was a rose that I really enjoyed. The wine was a salmon color and this had me wondering. A light flowery aroma and as far as the taste, there was very subtle fruit of which I detected some sort of melon. The best thing about this wine was that it was dry and had a medium finish. This wine could go with almost any summer cusine. Loved it.
So good. not sappy sweet, some nice fruit notes. not a big finish, but so refreshing.

The 2011 Muga Rose is a blend of around 60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% "other" varieties and Jorge Muga was at pains to point out that the vines are specifically cultivated for the rose and not the bi-product of another red.

Pale, salmon-pink colour with slightly copper-tinged hues in the bulb of the glass.A curious vintage in terms of aromas, as we can hardly detect the typical tart apple and citrus fruits which are normally such a hallmark of this wine in other years. This time we are confronted with a whole spectrum of fruit aromas in which perhaps pears, peaches and passion fruit are the ones which stand out most. The impression is comparable with the impact on our sense of smell when we enter a fruit market: you can smell everything, it is all pleasant on the nose, but there is not just a single, clearly recognisable aroma.In the mouth it is syrupy without being sweet, supple thanks to the work of the fine lees, and held together by the right touch of sharpness provided by the garnacha grape.
Bright pink. A complex bouquet displays scents of red berries, cherry, dried flowers, anise and baking spices. Pliant, silky red berry flavors display good depth and gentle sweetness, with a late note of fennel adding complexity. Finishes with good juicy persistence and lingering minerality. Dry enough to work by itself but has the power to handle richer, grilled foods.
